Focus on Raw Materials and Crop Production

Raw materials and crop production, especially cotton may be a top priority for the government, as Kasturi Cotton, launched by the government will be a huge step in strengthening India’s brand value globally. The other natural crops such as Jute, Khadi, Silk, etc will also get significant expansion support from the Indian government.

Expansion of Technical Textiles in India

Apart from handloom, another sector in focus will be technical textiles, it is emerging rapidly in India and is a huge scope for new start-ups. Stepping up the efforts to tap the vast range of usage and consumption for technical textiles in the domestic market as well as export of various segments under the technical textiles such as medial textiles, industrial textiles, geotextile, etc. due to various schemes of government such as rapidly progressing PM Gati Shakti, there is a big demand of geotextile, for various construction projects, road and railway, coastal protection and earth dikes. The rise of the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme to promote the production of MMF apparel, MMF fabrics, and products of technical textiles in the country, setting up Integrated Textile Regions and Apparel (PM MITRA) Parks and other new schemes will further enhance the technical textiles industry in India.
